Join us as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Springtime Tallahassee Grand Parade on April 7th at 10:30 am
Come see over 100 colorful units and floats, marching bands, dance groups, Springtime Krewe floats and much more. The parade steps off on Monroe Street just south of the intersection of Monroe Street and Brevard Street and travels south on Monroe past the Florida Capitol ending at Madison Street. The first Springtime parade featured many costumes and only horse drawn units.
Today, the parade still includes horse-drawn carriages to provide a bit of nostalgia; however, it also boosts elaborately clad characters and spectacular mechanical floats from all over the southeastern United States. Springtime Tallahassee is considered one of the biggest southeastern parades and craft shows, attracting over 70,000 spectators.
The 10K/5K races will be held on USATF certified courses, beginning on Monroe St. in downtown Tallahassee in front of the Leon County Courthouse and covering rolling hills through the beautiful Myers Park neighborhood. The 1 mile race will begin at 7:45 a.m., followed by the 10K and 5K races starting at 8:10 a.m.
